Ok... I just put Photoshop in my Arsenal of flash animation programs. But when I got to use it I come up with a big question mark? Why? You may ask. Because I don't know where to start first. I want to add some coolness to my animations but I don't know what or how to start. For example the cool self made effects that look like they were made in flash but but they could have easily been made in Photoshop.

So does any body have any cool tricks & tips to help me get the hang of making effects in Photoshop and Flash?

There's like tons of stuff you can do with Photoshopt that it would take 10 pages just to start.

Learn the basics, like why the blend modes do what they do, learn tips and other nifty stuff and so on.


Also there's other programs for doing effects for Flash. particleIllusion is one that I use alot along with PS and I'm also trying to learn about After Effects.


But take my advice : Learn everything you can about Photoshop, you'll soon notice that you have such a powerful program in your computer.

You can't make your own effects in Particle illusions bro but they're great.

Photoshop is nice to make your effects in, not needed though. You can also make them in Flash as well, I generally will use Photoshop for the dust effects, because it is easier to draw them there. In Flash, it is easier to draw hit effects, but you can make them in Photoshop as well, using the blends and filters to help you. However, most will suggest to use Photoshop because it is more powerful, but I still feel like Flash will do more for your hit effects. But if you like glows and what not, then I guess you can draw it in Photoshop and import it into Flash.

You do not need to use After Effects for your effects. Basically people will use them because the animation is done itself on After Effects because it is a tweening program. It will have the effects made for you, but the defaults are pretty crappy, so you can edit the information to make something nice. From there you can just import it into Flash as well. After Effects can be a nice addition, but I suggest leaving that for later, because you have have beautiful animations without it.
